The Podsednik  Adventure

The Podsednik Adventure is a 2010 American action-adventure disaster story based on a stereotype about center fielders, held by persons such as Dayton Moore.  Significantly, it has little or no apparent relation to the capsizing of a luxurious ocean liner by a tsunami caused by an under sea earthquake and the desperate struggles of a handful of survivors to journey up to the bottom of the hull of the liner before it sinks, nor does it resemble in any way the shuffling of the Deck Chairs on the Titanic.

 

The plot of this story focuses upon the travels and adventures of a pro athlete,  SS Podsednik, an aged center fielder from the golden age of baseball, on his final voyage from Chicago to Kansas City before being sent to the scrapyard. Not long after New Year's Day, SS Podsednik is acquired by the Kansas City Royals as a "speed type" of guy.   Fans and crew are then later in the year trapped inside Kaufman Stadium as rebellious proponents of advanced statistics try to show Royals' management the errors of its ways, etc., etc., and an Adventure is had by all.

Not likely to be a huge box office success, the Podsednik Adventure will likely only last a year.   The presumed success of this experiement is in the vein of baseball philosophy and moves (not movies!) left over from the 1970s, which, incidentally,  actually had some pretty cool movies,  such as Airport (1970) and later films like The Towering Inferno (1974), and Earthquake (1974).

A sequel to this story, Beyond the Podsednik Adventure (2011), is likely in the works, with an equally star-studded cast that may well include Brian Anderson, but not Jose Guillen.   This is also likely to be a box-office and critical failure.
